Today, I met with John Locke at 1pm. I was so excited to go back to RMU. I felt as though I was going to get this overwhelming sense of nostalgia. I had 30 mins before my meeting. I went to go visit MC, a professor I had when I was an undergrad. I talked to her about the class that I had last night. She gave me a great way to look at things. I told her how I feel as though I am going to struggle with it. She said, understandable, but a lot of the times we need to remove the lenses that we were born with and put on a new pair and read through those lenses and try to see things from a different perspective. I said I think I am afraid of what I may find. She said, that is okay, but that is how we become educated and better at seeing things in different people. I am so glad I talked to her. I feel better. I also asked her about the assignment that is due on September 10th. I have to summarize chapters 5-8 and say what the theme is in each chapter and summarize the key points of the theme. I said, Why am I struggling over this task? She said you are thinking way too much about it. I said, “probably so..” She laughed. She is going to send me some articles. I am so glad to have her in my circle of friends.
After my meeting with MC, I walked to the Center for Student Success to meet with John Locke. I was so excited! On my way, I took a picture with Bronze Bob. This is my second picture with Bronze Bob. He is a pretty cool guy. I am happy to be an RMU alum.
When I arrived, he was coming back from a lunch meeting. When he approached me, he hugged me and lead me into his office. He gave me a t-shirt and some Bobby Mo socks. They are so cute.
Our meeting lasted for 2 hours. I have a better sense of what is expected of me. I have some things to do for him remotely. We are going to communicate via google docs for now. My RMU e-mail will get set up eventually. I am just so blessed to be a Colonial and have made some awesome connections and friends. Being on RMU’s campus made me realize how far I have come and how much I have accomplished. I needed that.
After my meeting with John Locke, I went to Romo’s and had a Colonial Club. It is now called a Po Colonial. It still tastes the same. However, they serve it to you on a pretzel bun. It tasted so good. This was the only thing I ate all day. I am good for the rest of the night.
When I arrived home, I got a cold shower and sat down to update my blog. I feel so bad for letting this go so long. My life is about to get so crazy, but I am going to try to keep up with this I promise. I have class again tomorrow night, Leadership. I am really excited for this class. I need this day to remind me how I am on the right track and I have done pretty well for myself.
